Trip to Sedona, Pt. 2

Back to Sedona...

What makes this place such a tourist mecca? While the resort I stayed at was fantastic, you can find a great spa/hotel combination in quite a few cities. What you CAN'T find everywhere are the sweeping panoramic vistas that look like they were delivered from a John Ford western.

Ahhh....just what the doctor ordered.

Slide Rock State Park also provided a number of breathtaking tableaus:

High up on the hill (and worth the drive/hike) is the Chapel of the Holy Cross. This mod-looking church somehow looks like it belongs.

Other than the crazy Liberace-style home below, the views from the Chapel are amazing.

While the natural beauty of Sedona can be intoxicating, its main drag is definitely straight out of tourist land.

We did find a fun little Italian eatery that had great service and tasty food. Still, I don't know if I would ever use the word decadent to describe pizza.

How I envy whomever lives in that Liberace style home.

You got lucky with that amazing sky; there's nothing quite like the beauty of the desert.

We loved Sedona. I visited once about 40 years ago, then we recently had a day trip up from Phoenix, but next time, we are planning to stay in town for a few days. Everything here is pretty cool; food, hiking, scenery, shopping, even the weather is better due to altitude, and not as much "attitude" as exuded in Santa Fe.

Thanks for sharing the pics, I'm glad you had a good trip.
